Monday 31st May

Well last week started with torrential rain on the Sunday morning, about 30mm of rain. The combination of heat and rain causing a hell of an amount of growth.

On Monday and Tuesday we brushed greens and approaches and double cut behind with the triples. Fairways, tees, green surrounds and bunkers(blown, flymoed, strimmed and shaped) were all done in these two days.

Monday and Tuesday also saw the visit of the S.T.R.I for the first of their yearly reports.
